Is Nintendo under- or over-valued?

Valuing a stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge value.

P/E ratio

Nintendo's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Nintendo shares trade at around 15x recent earnings.

However, Nintendo's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the electronic gaming & multimedia industry or those of similar companies.

PEG ratio

Nintendo's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.1781. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Nintendo's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However, it's sensible to consider Nintendo's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

EBITDA

Nintendo's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $651.4 billion (£469.1 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Nintendo's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

To put that into context you can compare it against similar companies.

Nintendo share dividends

1.9%

Dividend yield: 1.85% of stock value

3.8%

Forward annual dividend yield: 3.77% of stock value

55.2%

Dividend payout ratio: 55.16% of net profits

Nintendo has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 1.85% of its share value annually.

Nintendo has paid out, on average, around 55.16% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.77% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), shareholders could enjoy a 3.77% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nintendo's case, that would currently equate to about $2220 per share.

Nintendo's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Nintendo's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2016. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Nintendo's dividend yield is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.

Have Nintendo's shares ever split?

Nintendo's shares were split on 26 March 1991.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Nintendo's shares have ranged in value from as little as $55 up to $82.55. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NTDOY.US volatility(beta: 0.81)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (PINK average) beta is 1, while Nintendo's is 0.809. This would suggest that Nintendo's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

To put Nintendo's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
